Ricochet Wireless Mesh Network for Domestic and Commercial Security Use

Texecom : 19 March, 2010  (New Product)
Texecom has launched Ricochet, a wireless mesh network designed specifically to meet the challenges of wireless security systems
Ricochet Wireless Mesh Network for Domestic and Commercial Security Use
Security product manufacturer Texecom has now launched its professional-grade mesh network wireless platform: Ricochet. This innovative technology has been designed from the ground up to overcome the limitations and address the concerns of existing wireless security systems.

Devices with Ricochet technology send, receive and repeat wireless transmissions from all other compatible devices in the network. This means that each and every enabled device provides a data route for the wireless signal to and from Texecom's Premier Series control panels, allowing the network to 'repair' itself when a connection even begins to weaken.

Traditional wireless systems rely on simple 'point-to-point' communication, where each connection is made directly between the control panel and the device. In this situation, distances between the controller and security sensor can be very limited, with outlying zones susceptible to signal loss. By creating a mesh network of interconnecting points, the Ricochet system maintains signal integrity even in the event of direct-line interference.

Texecom has also developed the new SignalSecurity diagnostic tool, which actively monitors the wireless network in real-time - eliminating the need for cumbersome site signal strength surveys. It shows, in real-time, the network's status and condition, and the total number of alternative signal routes for each device. This therefore offers a superior indication of total system integrity compared to a simple signal strength measurement.

The initial range of products available with Ricochet includes a 32-zone wireless expander, 15m digital PIR, 15m digital quad PIR, shock sensor, magnetic contact and wireless keyfob. The company is making significant investments in the continued development of the Ricochet platform, with additional devices, systems and features being rolled out in the near future.
